We live in an age where many things are connected, we are connected to the electricity, the water we drink and music and art that we “i” absord. Plus a lot of toxic stuff.
The american indians said to the white folk as they arrived to the US, so i heard. “”you can’t eat petrol””. Someone also told me that the wise people within the tribes often were thinking seven generations away with their way of thinking. Could it be that the indian people let the white folk take their land and destroy everything “possibly” becauase they refused to allow their culture to migrate to the “”anglo saxon”white mans world””?
To go on about creative commons “corporation”. Corporations are about maximum profit. If the art/written- that we create has no value, then the human right of a person to create as they choose may be lost for ever. Is this such a great thing?
From my view, the power of the commons is huge, yet the power of the individuals rights are going to be lost if the creativity of you are of no value or of value in a non-commercial way, cause how can commercial enterprise exist when the property of the people is free?
So when you I or anyone else give away something for free, without asking for reward in return, the rewards culture that we live in, no-longer has value. What does this equate to in the end? Who can say?
When something is free, people abuse it, the donkey did not win in animal farm, the pig did, yet maybe i just live in the illusion of this, maybe the donkey did win.
My experience of life after living in the Czech republic is this. Leave a door open and people are going to walk in and take what they can. Lock the door and someone probably has a key anyway.
The philosophy of the communist times was, as i have been told, “if you don’t steal it, your stealing from your family”. This way of thinking looks to have been passed on, what communism has done to the culture here in Eastern block is sad for even the people that exploited the rights. Yet maybe this philosophy of stealing developed only after the Russians brought their tanks to Prague. For sure the hat just changed color.
when i go to markets i find peoples histories thrown to the trash. As if they had no value. Excuse the opinions on Christmas day. Santa clause is not a guy that walks through the subway.
